    Saddle Suggestions

    Guys,

    I have put roughly 1oo miles on my new 29er, and am absolutely loving it! My issue is this...I noticed over the past few rides that my seat is apparently not liking the fact that I'm not dropping the lbs as quickly as needed. It is 'bending' downward a little bit more after each ride . So I'm in the market for a clyde friendly saddle and wanted to know what you guys might be able to suggest as a suitable replacement.



    Regards,

    Tessai

    Is it bending or tilting? A lot of new bikes use inexpensive seatposts that do not hold the seat in place very well for us clydes. I just wanted to make sure that the saddle is actually bent and not just knocked out of place. If the saddle is really the culprit then I use and like the Specialized Henge MTB saddle (make sure your bike shop does a fitting so you get the right size though.) If the seatpost is the culprit I recommend replacing it with a Thomson stem.

    I have to ask is the post holding the saddle rails in an acceptable area? Too far forward or backward along with Clyde weights will bend most saddles. Just a suggestion, good luck!
